Funky Friday Four Pack

The Human League - Love Action (12" Remix)
Since it's been all-'80s-all-week I have to end the week with at least one oldie. This is absolutely one of my ten most favorite songs ever.

Goldfrapp - Fly Me Away (C2 Remix 4)
Carl Craig takes Moroder's riff for Donna Summer's I Feel Love and applies it to the lovely Miss Goldfrapp for a gently simmering mix.

Tommy Guerrero - Badder Than Bullets
This former skate god turned guitar hero has a new LP out on Quannum. Called From The Soil To The Soul, it is his usual blend of low fi hip hop and guitar licks, although this time around it rocks harder. It also features Lyrics Born singing. Good stuff.

Dosh - Um, Circles And Squares
Martin Dosh is a Minneapolis drummer. He has played for Fog and Lateduster. He has also released several albums and EPs of post rock experimentation. This track is from his brand new Anticon LP The Lost Take. It features some lovely violin and saxophone. Not exactly funky like James Brown, but it still has me grooving.
